Hello User330


Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities. As your PC’s most important startup program, BIOS, or Basic Input/Output System, is the built-in core processor software responsible for booting up your system. Typically embedded into your computer as a motherboard chip, the BIOS functions as a catalyst for PC functionality action.

You can check this article from HP for more information:

If you need any official documentation it's recommended that you contact the motherboard manufacturer.
